"No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk. What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it." ~ Thomas Sowell
I am an insatiable reader of non-fiction, mainly military and American history and the 'sciences'. I am a lifetime student of native plant life and am an herbologist of two decades now. I 'collect' 'Native American' artifacts and weaponry. I enjoy gardening, trout fishing, travel, and several forms of crafting. I am a dedicated 'activist' hoping to preserve the environment and culture of this region I am a small part of.
